Ernst Fehr Receives Honorary Doctorate from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

On the occasion of its 140th anniversary, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) awarded an honorary doctorate to Ernst Fehr.

VU Amsterdam’s Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences and the School of Business and Economics (SBE) nominated Ernst Fehr for his research into important social and societal phenomena, such as equality, reciprocity and social norms. According to his nominators, Ernst Fehr’s research is tremendously relevant to our modern economic life because it focuses on socially relevant questions about opposing inequality and the role of processes from neurobiology and behavioural science in trust and cooperation between people. Congratulations!
